Tom Wolfe Review
An excellent review of the new Tom Wolfe novel, I Am Charlotte Simmons, over at The American Mind this morning.
I Am Charlotte Simmons is Tom Wolfe delving into college life. You'd think a 74-year old man would not be able to portray such an environment with any accuracy. Somehow the old reporter pulled it off. Being almost eight years out of college I'll tell you that I Am Charlotte Simmons is pitch perfect. He got teenager's cadence and obsessive use of "like" and "totally" down pat. Males' need to constantly watch SportsCenter as well as their need to get drunk are also spot on.This is one on my "read soon," list. Along with the new Michael Crichton novel.
